Fisher House is a charming Victorian B&B about a 10 min. walk from the ferry. We had a very pleasant 2 night stay the first week in August. We stayed in the Sarah Suite-the room was bright and cheery and the king bed was comfy. Breakfasts were delicious and the presentation outstanding. Jen was very helpful mapping out bike routes, suggesting restaurants, and very accommodating in regard to our late ferry departure to Port Angeles. If you are looking for a B&B on the outskirts of downtown Victoria, we highly recommend Fisher House.

Quaint B&B with only three rooms. Excellent location close to downtown and where the cruise ships come in. Owners are very friendly and helpful. House is beautiful - we stayed in the room with the private bathroom and balcony... lovely. Breakfast was OK, not as nice as I have experienced for this price in Victoria, but was still good. Also didn't like the noise of all the seagulls in the morning, but that's what you get with a B&B this close to the ocean. Overall a nice property and experience.

Three of us stayed at the Fisher House B&B in July. We all enjoyed our stay and would gladly book there again.

The B&B is located on Simcoe, about equidistant from Belleville along the Inner Harbour and Dallas Road. It is in a residential area, about a 12 – 15 minute walk to the beginning of downtown Victoria, and therefore away from the bustle. If driving, it is best to approach the B&B from Menzies, rather than Oswego. Parking is tight in the front of the B&B and approaching from Oswego requires a 180 degree turn into the parking space.

There are approximately a dozen steps going up to the entrance. In addition to the entry way on the first floor, there is a lounge for use of the guests, as well as the dining room. Bedrooms are located on the next floor above, up a stairway of about 15 or 16 steps. Although we had absolutely no difficulty in climbing either set of stairs, this B&B might not be the best choice for anyone who has mobility issues.

There are three “main” bedrooms. The room at the back, which we saw as It was being prepared for new guests, has a king bed, an ensuite bathroom and a lovely outdoor balcony/patio overlooking the back garden. The two others rooms have either a queen bed or twin beds. A smaller room for one person can be booked in conjunction with either of these two rooms, which makes it very convenient if several persons are travelling together. Each of the two rooms has a bathroom, either across the hall or down the hall, which is private and dedicated to that room. (The person in the smaller room shares whichever bathroom belongs to the main bedroom with which it has been booked.)

The B&B is very well kept, but being a heritage building does have the usual creaky floors that one expects in a building of its age. Our rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast was delicious. (Prospective guests should consult the “Breakfast” description on the website as there is an opportunity for a lighter breakfast to be served, but only on request.) One morning, there were seven of us at the breakfast table, two persons needing a gluten-free breakfast, two persons needing a vegan breakfast and our party of three who were happy with whatever Jen chose to serve, and all were accommodated. The first day we were served lovely blueberry and nut pancakes. The second day we ate a delicious quiche. There were facilities in the dining room to brew tea or coffee during the day and freshly baked cookies appeared in the evening.

Jen was a lovely hostess. She was flexible regarding our check-in time (just after lunch because of ferry times – but discussed before arrival) and helpful in suggesting nearby restaurants where locals go to eat. We ate dinner at two of her recommendations (Heron Rock Bistro further down Simcoe and Bubby’s Kitchen in Cook Village) and really enjoyed our meals.

All in all, we had a lovely stay and, as mentioned, would gladly stay there again.
